Description


At last! A leather working book for amateurs by a top professional.

Valerie Michael guides the leatherworker through techniques and projects, showcasing the very best of her knowledge and experience.

After a thorough presentation of each of the key techniques - such as finishing edges, paring and hand stitching, making pockets, attaching studs and straps and decorating surfaces - there are ten projects, suitable for developing levels of skill, from belts and wallets to quilted work and three different types of leather bag.

Not only is this book an ideal introduction to a centuries-old craft, but its comprehensive treatment of materials, tools and techniques makes it an invaluable work of reference.
